Doctor Hugh?

By Mark

Hugh Grant has confirmed what Russell T Davies revealed back in the day about the casting for Series 1 – that Grant was approached in the early stages to play the lead in Doctor Who.

He says, "I was offered the role of the Doctor a few years back and was highly flattered. The danger with those things is that it's only when you see it on screen that you think, 'Damn, that was good, why did I say no?' But then, knowing me, I'd probably make a mess of it." He adds, "I'm in talks about a one-off role. I'd prefer to be a baddie - they're always much more fun to play!"

Hugh Grant in Doctor Who? Who knows? Its one to look out for.
